Psychotronic Art is a psycho-technological action movement, which includes the creation of paintings based on the effect defined as "colored surfaces of geometric objects have an influence on energy-informational space content"; works of psychotronic art which are performed mostly through paintings in genre of abstract art and described as not just paintings, but works with significant transformational influence in according with the conscious intention of people.

This term "Psychotronic Art" ("Психотронное искусство" in Russian) and such artworks were introduced and performed by Andrei Siderski, a master with a decades-years experience in practicing yoga, developer of modern approach in training of yoga gymnastics, translator of books by Swami Sivananda, Richard Bach and Carlos Castaneda, a poet and writer, artist of Psychotronic Art.[1][2] Yoga significantly influenced Siderski's art working, and during 1990-2003 he developed Psychotronic Art.

A specialist of the sacred texts of the Indian subcontinent, art curator, collector and essayist Ajit Mookerjee noted in 1975 in his book "YOGA ART":[3]

“The yogi artist’s perception of form is grounded in his process of symbolization. The function of the symbol is unique for the yogi artist in that it operates as the link between observation of the outer world and a very precise extraction of its essence.”

"There is, however, one important respect in which much Western abstract art is different from the yoga art images. The modern works are often meant to evoke in the spectator sensuous and ideological responses to the painting's concrete attributes. Klees or Mondrians which closely resemble the checker-boards of Indian calculation diagrams need to carry, in their very physical make-up, clues to the meanings which are to be projected on to them from within the spectator. A human content is meant to emerge to vitalize the form."
